Overview

By the early 1990s, four thousand Jews remained in Poland, a startling figure considering 3.25 million Jews lived there at the start of World War II. Indeed, of all the horrors of the Holocaust, Polish Jewry suffered the worst fate. But miraculously, the Jewish community in Poland has been experiencing a rebirth over the past decade. The Jewish population there is now estimated at twenty thousand. This increase is not due to immigration, but to the surfacing of secrets, family truths that have been buried since the early days of the Holocaust, when many Jews hid their identity, their religion, and their heritage in order to survive.
